POSIXplorer will help you find, navigate, and open files on Linux, Mac OS, or most POSIX systems. You just type the command and then a regex for which you'd like to search. By default, it searches filenames and excludes class and other data files. It looks recursively down from your current directory. If you'd like to search through file contents, use the '-c' flag. When using -c, after the regex, you can list a file pattern, such as * (the default) to match any file or *.java to match Java files. After searching on your query, it presents a list of results and lets you type a number to select one for opening in the editor you have defined in the EDITOR environment variable, or by default Vim. After quitting the editor, you come back to your results and can continue opening files or execute a new search. To run a new search, just type the query and the script will detect that you did not intend to enter a file number. Note that in content searches with -c, only a new content query can be entered, not a new file filter.
vimpc is a curses-based client for the Music Player Daemon (mpd) that draws inspiraton from vi/vim. It supports a vim-like rc file, mappable key bindings, normal/ex modes, counts, searching, a music library, directory navigation, playlist editing, and comprehensive help, is highly configurable and customizable, and more. It is written with the intent to make vi users feel at home when using mpd, but is also intuitive and very usable by non-vi users.
